my Sunflower purse is finished and I think it is cute as a button.
Even the inside is nice and neat ( not like the pencil case)
This purse was fun to make. I think I have to make one with Christmas fabrics but bigger of course! Or I have a bunch of Halloween fabrics I can use up……do you think I am to old for “Trick or Treat” ing ??
I have to share a tip (trick) I learned from Silke ( she learned it from someone else and told me)…don't you just love how we share our knowledge?
For the batting I didn’t use normal Thermolan…I used …your going to love this ….Floor washing clothes!
I don't know if you have these in America but here in Germany a lot of the housewives still wash their floors the old fashion way ( not me…I use a mop…actually I use a Maid :-)
These cloths are super thick and sturdy and washable!…perfect as a batting in a purse. Best of all they are cheap! You get 2 – 50 x 58 cm pieces for .99 cents!! I got mine at Lidl but Aldi has some too (they had a print on theirs and Lidls are plain white).
I see the headlines tomorrow…Lidl is sold out of Floor clothes…all the German women are getting ready for Christmas cleaning…if they only knew Quilters were at work!
Since I had success making this purse…today I am going to try my luck again with Zippers …If you hear someone screaming & cussing …its just me!
P.S If anyone has a good link to a tutorial on how to make a tote, pouch or purse with a zipper…feel free to send it to me. I am going to master this zipper thing if it kills me …that or I will be giving away a lot of ugly bags.
